About the property

Apartment, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

We invite you to savour the hospitality of Rio Santo Residences, a charming, typically Barbados stone property, designed with striking hardwood balustrades on its patios and verandahs. Nestled in a quiet cul de sac, it is undoubtedly an ideal retreat from the daily hustle and bustle.

We offer a well-appointed traditional three-bedroom house and two adjoining modern one-bedroom apartments, all on a self-catering basis.

In this three-bedroom ground floor house, you will enjoy the convenience of a large patio and wet bar; a living room, cooled by ceiling fan, that seats six comfortably; a separate entertainment area with TV, radio/cassette stereo, DVD and video facilities; a kitchen fully-outfitted with large refrigerator; four-burner stove; microwave oven; toaster; electric kettle; pots and pans; crockery; cutlery, etc., and a laundry room equipped with washer and dryer.

You will be able to sleep six persons in the air-conditioned bedrooms and an additional two persons on the sofa-bed, if required. Two bathrooms complete this very desirable villa.

In each of the one-bedroom apartments, we offer accommodation for two to three persons. Here you will find an open plan layout with flow-through living, dining and kitchen. We feature in the kitchen a small refrigerator; four-burner stove; microwave oven; toaster; electric kettle; pots and pans; crockery; cutlery, etc.

In the air-conditioned bedroom are two twin beds, which may be joined or separated as needed. . Of course, we also have an ample supply of linens.

When you are not on the beach, you may wish to enjoy the sun’s rays on the large sun deck or relax with a cool local beverage of your choice.

Rio Santo Residences is advantageously located close to the famous St. Lawrence Gap in Barbados, and across the street from a white sandy beach, washed by the crystal clear turquoise waters of the Caribbean sea. Mere yards away is the popular Accra Beach.

Nearby, within walking distance, are supermarkets, banks, medical offices, pharmacy, shops, hotels, restaurants, bars and nightclubs. The area is heavily trafficked, well-lighted and safe for walking.

As the property is virtually on the bus transportation route, a car is not essential but most people elect to have one, especially for sight-seeing and travel to venues outside the immediate vicinity. For those preferring not to drive themselves, taxi service is readily available.

Within ten minutes by car are the Rockley Golf Club, the National Tennis Centre, the Garrison Historic Area (including the headquarters of the Barbados Defense Force and the Garrison Savannah horse racing track), and the Museum and Historical Society. It is about 15 minutes to the capital city Bridgetown and 20 minutes to the Grantley Adams International Airport. UNESCO recently designated Bridgetown and the Garrison Historic Area as an international heritage site.

The South Coast of Barbados has great appeal to the visitor. It is vibrant, with great night life and many excellent restaurants. Mojo's is next door and a short walk away is everyone's favourite Champers Restaurant and Wine Bar. The best known area is the popular St. Lawrence Gap. There you will find the After Dark Night Club, the popular Pisces Restaurant, The Ship Inn offering a sports bar, restaurant and nightclub, Josef’s Restaurant, the Bay Bistro, McBride’s, and gaming arcades, among other attractions. Also within easy reach is Oistin’s Town, famous for its fresh fish fries and down-to-earth ambience.

Rio Santo is your home away from home. From there, you can Reach Out And Touch Barbados!

Unbeatable Location

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay here. We booked the 3 bdrm home- My fiance and I took the bedroom with the ensuite which was very convenient. This home is nestled in a nice quiet pocket off the main road. It felt very safe and was close to all amenities. 2 grocery stores gas station and duty free shop, restaurants all within 5 minute walk. The beach is just across the street maybe a 2 minute walk. There is a cute coffee shop around the corner as well that we got used to visiting every morning. The house is well appointed. Has everything you need and lots of space. Very clean too! The airconditioning in the rooms were awesome. I usually have a hard time falling asleep with a.c. but the unit in our bdrm was so quiet I slept like a baby! Comfy bed too. We sat out on the porch every night it was so peaceful and relaxing! Neighbors were very friendly as well! Mojos is just around the corner, great for wings burgers and cocktails. Couldn't really hear the noise from the house either. There was also a security guard hanging out in the mojos parking lot/street there at night so we felt very safe walking back to our place. I read a bit about the sewage back up issue around Worthing and the property owner mentioned it as well but we honestly wouldn't have noticed it if we hadn't been told about it. For me it was a non issue. We loved the beach across the street. Was quiet, had beautiful white sand and great waves for body surfing. We walked to Rockley beach a couple times for a more lively atmosphere by the tiki bar and again that was honestly maybe a 5 minute walk. There is a bus route that you can snag for 2 bucks and you can literally go anywhere on it haha. We would definitely stay here again. Anton was very accomodating and professional. Just an all around awesome person to deal with! Looking forward to going back!!

Rio Santo Residences, Worthing, Barbados

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 6, 4 adults and 2 young children, primarily visiting Barbados to attend a family wedding and to enjoy a week of sun and sea as our escape from a protracted winter season in Canada.

The Rio Santo Residences consists of 2 one bedroom units and a 3 bedroom home. We stayed at the 3 bedroom home and enjoyed a week of relaxation and fun. The house is well appointed. It is spacious and comfortable with all the amenities of home. The 3 bedrooms are air conditioned and the other living areas are comfortable and in excellent condition. It is situated in an ideal location ideal location, with access to everything you desire. There are 2 supermarkets in close proximity and the beach is a hop, step and a jump away from the residences. If one chooses to dine out, the St. Lawrence gap is an easy walk away and there are several fine dining restaurants located there and the ambiance along the "Gap" is to be enjoyed. Down the street is a Casino and a conservation area lies between Rio Santo and the Gap. We travelled the inexpensive way exploring beaches by taking local public transportation, and there is an over abundance of them. Hint: try to avoid the rush hour traffic and you will have no problems with the local transportation.

Anton , our host was very helpful and informative and the house we stayed at had maps and information on anything the visitor to Barbados required. We enjoyed our stay tremendously and will be back at the Rio Santo again if that is if we are able to get reservations after this review. Thank you Anton for making our stay a memorable one.

Awesome house and location

  • 5 of 5

I'm so glad we picked this house. It was absolutely perfect. Well stocked kitchen, washer and dryer, two living rooms a dining room and 3 bedrooms. The front porch was the best part and so relaxing. Air conditioning in a all bedrooms and main parts of the house had fans. At first I was worried about that coming from the states but it wasn't bad at all. The location was ideal. Located at the end of a street which made you feel very safe which was important because it was just 3 women traveling. Walk across the street to the beach, Mojos Reataurant was just a little walk along with the grocery store. We took the bus for $2 (Barbados) to st Lawrence gap and to Oistins. Anton was amazing and met as very late when we arrived (12:30am) to greet us and show us around. Any problems we had he was right on it. We will stay here again with no doubt. You can't beat the price either.

Nice, quiet and central location

  • 4 of 5

We were a little concerned initially about potential noise from the bar/restaurant Mojos, which is a poplar place, but to our surprise it was fairly quiet. The area is very nice, central to numerous beaches, grocery stores, restaurants and night life. We stayed in the one bedroom unit which is sufficiently appointed and well maintained. At least 10 parrots live in the trees surrounding the property. We felt safe the whole time. Owner very pleasant and accommodating. Definitley reccomend

The location of the house was great. Not far from the beach. Close to the grocery store. We were there for 10 days and didn't need a car a all. Anton was wonderful. The house was clean. It is not fancy. Everything thing that we needed was there. I cannot wait to go back
